After the daily drama that surrounded DeSean Jackson and the Philadelphia Eagles, the young wide receiver has finally been released. It would have been great to see the type of season Jackson would have had under Chip Kelly's second year as head coach, but fantasy football players can't daydream about what could have been.
Here are the five best teams for the fantasy football value of DeSean Jackson.
With an upgrade at quarterback in Josh McCown, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers need to surround the veteran quarterback with offensive weapons. Vincent Jackson is still hanging around, but he is the only consistent option in the receiving game for Tampa Bay. Jackson would help improve the Buccaneers' offense that ranked 32nd in passing yards in 2013, and he would instantly have fantasy value.
Even though the Baltimore Ravens recently signed Steve Smith, signing DeSean Jackson would make the Ravens an absolute powerhouse. How could any defense stop Torrey Smith, Steve Smith, Dennis Pitta and DeSean Jackson? Jackson would find plenty of mismatches if he lined up at receiver for the Ravens.
We have already seen the type of fantasy football numbers that Jackson can produce when he plays with Michael Vick, so many fantasy players are rooting for Jackson to sign with the New York Jets.
The Carolina Panthers have a very tight budget, but the team needs to find weapons for Cam Newton. Jackson would become the favorite receiver of Newton, and he would remain a top option in fantasy football.
This already sounds too good to be true. Tom Brady throwing passes to DeSean Jackson? If he can land with the New England Patriots, Jackson will fly off the draft boards in August.
